Do you have a plastic pocket protector for your Spork?

Of course!

I also invented a utility belt that I use for cooking. It's lined with canisters of all my spices, like shotgun shells. I spin it around like a lazy susan, fast draw the spice I need, shake-shake, flip the canister back into its holster, and spin my belt around for the next spice. You could call me the John Wayne of Cooking.

For the past couple months, I'm afraid I'm more of a nerd by this definition. Time and cash are issues as we're trying to save as much as possible for when the new baby comes. I still cook a fair amount (since it's way cheaper than eating out), but I read more new recipes/learn new things far more often than I use them at the moment. I like to think that I'm storing up knowledge for a future date.

LOL! I was reading "Cuisine At Home" while eating my can of chili at lunch today! Yeah, I'm reading a lot more than I am cooking!

That's very curious. When I was in high school, a nerd was someone who was uncoordinated, clumsy, and not particularly intelligent. You always ignored anything they said, because it was bound to be incorrect. Now, a geek was a rare animal indeed! He was said to inhabit carnival side shows. He was the one who bit the heads off of chickens for your entertainment. Since I am now 63, the world of english language has changed. I'm sorry, but I can't help but snicker when I hear people referred to as nerds and geeks.

The English language, as a living language, changes over time. Being in the same age range as you I have seen it too. Words' meanings just aren't the same as before.

Yes, a carnival geek was as you described. Not anymore unless you happen to work in a carnival. Gay used to mean joyful or carefree, now it's widely accepted to refer to homosexuals. Now, no one would take it to mean joyful or carefree in describing a person. Teens use it to describe something they reject as different that they don't like, "That's so gay!".

The English language is become more imprecise. We use fewer words to describe more things than ever before.
